Plans & Consents

The Magic Happens

Once we begin the earthworks and preparing the site for building on, you’ll start to see your dream home take shape.

Generally throughout the project, we’ll have weekly meetings to update you on progress and discuss any aesthetic elements that require your input. However, if you would prefer more or less involvement, we will involve you in a way that works for you.

During your project, we manage all inspections, the subcontractors and required specialists.

But don’t worry, the support doesn’t end there, we stay in touch to make sure there aren’t any issues. You’ll also be covered by the Halo residential guarantee for the next 10 years as we include this in all our renovations.
